20 Things You Learn To Hate About Getting The Train Home For Reading Week

Going home for reading week is something to look forward to. Actually getting home via public transport is not.

2. Taking so much washing home with you that you end up with multiple items of luggage.

Which will be super fun manoeuvring on and off the train.

3. Deciding to risk taking those library books with you even though you know someone will probably recall them as soon as you leave.

12. Attempting to actually do some reading on the journey but giving up after five minutes because you can’t concentrate.

13. Wishing you’d just got the Megabus after all; at least then you wouldn’t have paid as much for a bad experience.

15. Debating texting your flatmate but deciding that if it is indeed unlocked it would be best not to point it out.

16. Wishing you hadn’t drank as much the night before because people are aggravating your hangover.

18. Texting your parents to let them know what time you’ll be arriving at home and feeling slightly unwanted when you get no response.
